Equipped with a Large APS-C Sensor for the Highest Image Quality. Achievement of Superb High Resolution, High Sensitivity & Impressive “Bokeh” Effect
The X-E1's sensor adopts the same high-performance 16M X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring an originally developed color filter array with a highly random pixel arrangement, its X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The unique random arrangement of the color filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful “bokeh” effect - the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.
Design & Accessories - Two different X-E1s with two personalities.
The analog interface enabling instinctive operation that allows you to capture “the perfect moment”. Two X-E1s, two personalities. With an 18-55mm lens the X-E1 is compact and has a bright F2.8 as well as an image stabilization function for four shutter speeds. It is available in black or silver. Black The black X-E1 allows the subject to forget about the camera and is therefore optimal for reportage work. Silver The silver X-E1's refined design and feel stands out among the X series and is great for casual occasions. It's perfect for women and the younger generation.
Full HD Movies with Cinema-like Image Quality Shoot Full HD movies (1920 x 1080) at 24fps, the same frame rate used for cinema films. In addition to using Monochrome or other Film Simulation modes to enhance your artistic expression, you can take full advantage of the combination of X-E1's large sensor and bright XF lenses to capture movies with a large and beautiful defocused “bokeh” background. Connect stereo microphones (commercially sold) to the microphone connector to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.
